Greetings from yacht Ensemble!
Happy St Patrick's Day! As you can see in the photo - we dressed in green and drank Murphy's for our sunset drinks. This was followed by an Irish stew for dinner.
The day's sailing was better - we stopped the engine 24 hours ago - and while it has been slow - (only 4 knots at times) the breeze is freshening now and is in a useful direction - and the seas are calm. Hopefully it
will hold up for a few days!
With the fishing I nearly landed one this morning. I checked the line to see it had fully run out and was just held by the knot. So I (painfully) started winding the line in. After 30 minutes the line went slack (bugger!).
We also have a mysterious water leak (we think). It seems to be a slow leak - and we have no trouble making more water - but we will try and track it down today.
Otherwise - hopefully plain sailing...
